In this episode of The Synchronicity Show, I talk with Donny Starkins about self-love, personal development, the power of mindfulness, and how being in the ‘work’ ultimately saved his life. | Brought to you by The Mindful Method.
As a former Division 1 baseball player, Donny’s journey into Personal Development and Mindfulness began in 2005, after seven operations on his left knee and an addiction to painkillers. Fast forward to today, Donny has many years of sobriety and has become one of the dynamic leaders in his industry. He is a professional speaker, teacher, and personal development coach leading classes, workshops, and seminars all across the world. He’s the creator of “The Shift” Transformational Coaching, a 90-Day Personal Development Private Coaching program. In addition, Donny works one-on-one with some of the top professional athletes in the world on mindset, life coaching, and mindfulness. Donny is also an ambassador for lululemon and works directly on their Mindful Performance Team as both a yoga/meditation teacher and facilitator.
With an emphasis on mindfulness, he challenges each student/client to explore their edge, discover their purpose, and develop an everyday practice of intention and presence. His calm, focused instruction, and peaceful energy makes even the most difficult scenarios possible to work through. Donny’s teaching creates an overall connected, grounded, and inspiring experience for all levels of yoga, meditation, and personal development. Donny’s mission is to teach, inspire and empower others to own their greatness and step into their purpose.
We cover everything from allowing life to unfold, getting out of your own way, why staying focused on personal development is so important, the role mindfulness plays in professional sports and so much more.
Please enjoy this episode about personal development, and the power of mindfulness with none other than Donny Starkins.
